Tired Tuesday.....

So....did I mention that the rainy season is over. Did I also mention that when the rainy season is over, it pretty much gets hot....and humid here. Well, my friends, it is going to be a long summer because there is not enough baby powder in the world that is going to keep me and certain body parts...mainly "the girls" dry...if today is any example of what is to come.
My favorite part of the day is when I'm trying to fix my hair (because I am NOT one of those lucky ones who can just "wash and go"...nonononononono...there must be gels and blow drying and sprays involved.) Oh...I can get it all done in about 15 minutes ('cause I'm good, don't ya know!!) but....the fun actually starts when, as I'm trying to get my hair just right little beads of sweat are rolling down my face. Yeah...that's pretty. Okay....happy place....positive thinking...let's see...okay okay okay...got one....
The pores of my face are going to be sooooo clean....I'm going to look so young...hell, people will probably think that I'm 15 years younger, I'm going to have such a glow.
yeah...okay...whatevah!! {smile}
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
So....some stuff to smile about then I'm off to read the 80-some new posts that are waiting for me in my Google Reader!!!

Can you see what this sign from an eating establishment says?
"The Groval Buffet by ROYAL"

So...I'm thinking...."just what kind of restaurant IS this? What if I just want to go in and order something off the menu.....do I have to actually beg?"

Okay.....so knowing the Japanese way of thinking and writing....this really should have been

"The Global Buffet"......but, I'm thinking that I kind of like it better the way it is on the sign. It's kind of....wild, don't you think...a challenge in buffet eating? I told most of my students about this and they all got a huge kick out of it...."Oh pleeeeeassssseeeeee.....can't I have sssssssooooommmmething to eeaat? Can't I have just a tiny bite?"

And this one....no...huh-uh...no explanation necessary. *snort*

You all have yourselves a great Tuesday....I'm thinking dry and cool thoughts!! I'm definitely NOT thinking about my man Matthew and how he is now a new father of a baby boy...no...no...don't think I'm even going to go there. Yeah yeah yeah...happy for them..blah blah blah...I may need to find a new "crush"!!!

I can't believe I'm hearing that Matthew had his baby from someone in Japan! I guess I should turn on my t.v. once in a while.

ROFL! Groval. Close enough. As for the girls, trust me, I know and should now own stocks in talcum powder. And my hair, I quit doing anything with it. The humidity wins. The end.

Lost in translation, funny! I love those undies, though. Do you know where to get some, my boys would LOVE them!

Yes I am wtih you on mourning matthew...and forget doing my hair in the summer. After "product" and high speed fans on the butt while blowdrying the hair to try to reach equilibrium somewhere in between, 15 minutes later my hair is frizzed out. but I love the heat, so I'm not really complaining! I just need a better hair style, someday.

My kitchen is pretty much a Groval Buffet every day (Mom? Can I have some Goldfish? Please mom just one goldfish? How about some cookies, just one cookie?").

Oy.

There's a sushi place in North Hollywood that have these little lamps on the table and they do this thing called "Lucky Lamp". If your's lights up you get some free thing or whatever. But the staff chant "Rucky Ramp!! Rucky Ramp" and it kills me. Every. Time.

I love to groval for food. There is a place in Whitby (where I live) called Sushi Mountain.
I love sushi, but will not eat any grown on a mountain. Or bought from a seven eleven for that matter.
Some things are sacred.

I just pretend all day that my hair & makeup still looks as good as it did when I left the house...

My life is one big fat illusion, and I'm pretty happy :D

(Good luck!)
